Resource Information on the Affordable Care Act
Looking for health care information? Questions about the Affordable Care Act's Health Insurance Marketplace?
The Dodgeville Public Library anticipates that many Dodgeville area residents will turn to their local libraries for help in accessing enrollment information when open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) began October 1, 2013. As always, libraries do not promote specific programs or points of view, but provide the public with balanced, unbiased access to information. Click on the icon on the left, or click here to visit our resource page. We will update as often as we receive new resources.

U.S. Public Libraries Weather the Storm Public libraries continue to transform lives by providing critical services and innovative solutions to technology access, in spite of years' worth of cumulative budget cuts. Libraries are part of the solution for those in search of the digital connection and skills required by today's competitive global marketplace. However, unless strategic investments in U.S. public libraries are broadened and secured, libraries will not be able to continue to provide the innovative and critical services their communities need and demand.
